Every year in March Co-op member-owners have the opportunity to help shape the future of the Co-op by voting in the Board of Directors election.
All current member-owners will receive voting materials in the mail, including a description of each candidate and voting instructions. The candidates will also be introduced at the Annual Meeting and Party on Saturday, March 7. You can then vote either online or in person at the Annual Meeting, or vote any time from March 1 to March 31 at the voting kiosk at either store or online from your home computer.
Your Co-op has become a $33-million-plus business with more than 230 employees. In addition to our two established stores, the new Co-op Connections Building, opening this spring, will house The Co-op Bakery, grab-and-go food, café drinks, staff offices, a classroom, and community meeting rooms. Improvements to the Downtown store will soon follow.
The success of the Co-op directly strengthens our ability to reach our goals for sustainability, supporting local suppliers, providing good local jobs, and serving our community.
Especially, it allows us to continue providing a delicious and healthy array of products and a friendly and informative shopping experience.
The role of the Board of Directors is to watch over and govern the Co-op to make sure everything is running smoothly. Directors determine the Co-op’s long-term strategic direction and monitor performance toward our current Strategic Plan. Having a knowledgeable and experienced Board of Directors helps us continue to achieve our financial, social, and environmental goals.
The Co-op has a unique and essential role as the only member-owned grocery store in our county.
Our strength comes from you—the member-owner. Please vote to keep your
